really liked it

This is a very educational graphic novel. I now have an understanding of of atomic energy, nuclear fission and the process by which the nuclear arms race was begun.

The simple black and white line drawings provide great background, while not detracting from the overall experience.

It touches on the affects, military, financial, humanity and moral, of the production and use of the Atomic bomb. It gives no small insight into the minds and lives of all involved. Lastly giving food for thought on the lingering issues of secrecy, diplomacy and man's insistence on pushing the envelope.

Enjoyed this on so many levels. Would recommend it to anybody with an interest. I come away feeling that this should be required reading in schools as soon as students can comprehend. A very good discussion generator.
